Aspire and Achieve Week was introduced in St. Michael’s Catholic Primary in 2012 with aim of improving attendance. Over the last 5 years it has developed into so much more than an attendance initiative.
We start with an early free breakfast for all children – providing fuel for the action packed day ahead! The children then take part in a carousel of job themed activities led by the teachers. Following this throughout the day there is a creative curriculum based on jobs and people who help us.
To enrich the week a variety of professionals visit the school and share with the pupils their roles in a variety of different formats. This includes workshops, demonstrations, assemblies and class talks.
Visitors this year have included a carpenter, rapper, musician, helicopter pilot, chocolatier, midwife, armed and community police, fireman, careers advisor, bus driver, health visitor, RAF, karate coach, sports teacher, health visitor, sky sports reporter, line dancer, Liverpool University, Royal Marine, nurse.
Year 5 children had the opportunity to try their hand a bricklaying, plastering and plumbing at Liverpool Community College.
The week was a great success!
